Quick Halloween Card

Happy Halloween to everyone.  I hope you all have a fun and safe holiday.  
I just had to have an awesome Lawn Fawn Spooktacular stamp set.  Then after I purchased it I realized that I don't usually make Halloween cards.  Me and my terrible buying habits.  So I decided that I would use the stamp and send a card to my son.  I won't be seeing him on Halloween this year so I would just add it to his care package.  
I started with embossing the spiderweb on to the purple cardstock and then running some black ink over it so it would show up a little more.  I used the A Muse Studio Classic Tag die and Boo Stamp set for the sentiment.  The pattern paper and twine is from Doodlebug.  I stamped the images from the Lawn Fawn set and colored them in with Copics.  

Mike was happy with his card....and all the Reese's Peanutbutter Cups. 

Happy Halloween.

Create - Craft - Share YouTube Hop October

Hello Everyone.

I'm glad you could stop by today and join us for the Create*Craft* Share YouTube Hop.  This month we are creating Halloween Decore` projects.  This month I created two separate banners. 

The first one I used my sewing machine.  I have it hung in my living room. 

The second  banner I created using material, iron-on pellon and fabric glue.  This banner was created with some pre-printed material  I just had to iron on the pellon, trim with pinking wheel and glue together. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  To take a look at all the stops in today's YouTube hop, here's a complete list of the YouTube Channels.

CBD - Getting Ready for Christmas Oct 2014

Getting Ready for Christmas

Hello Everyone.  Today Crafting by Design is starting a new challenge.  Each month we create a Christmas card so when we reach December we already have a few of our cards done and don't stress out over creating a bunch of cards. 

This week we are being sponsored by Just a Few Lines digital stamps.  

I created a cute little card with the digital stamp Seeing Santa


I used the Penny Black Christmas Story background stamp to create the background on the white paper.  The tree is from the Amuse Studio Winter Stag set.  

Be sure to stop by the Crafting by Designs blog and check out the rest of the design teams creations and enter your own Christmas creation.

Cards Created at Heartfelt Crop

Hello Everyone, 
I attended the Heartfelt Escape and Create crop a few weekends ago.  While I was there I created a few cards.  
A close friend of our son's is getting married.  It totally amazes me how old these kids are getting.  Brad was such a fun kid to have around and now he's all grown up and ready to marry the love of his life.  So I needed to create a card for them.  The stamps I used are from Jaded Blossom.
The second card was for my brother-in-laws birthday.  Earlier this year he purchased a new motorcycle.  So there was nothing better than using the Paper Smooches Spiffy Scooter stamp set.  

My third card I created was for the My Mind's Eye challenge.  I just happen to have a stamp printed off by Eureka Stamps on hand.  So here's what I created.  

It's been fun sharing my few creations from the crop with you.  I will stop by again on Wednesday with a creations for the Crafting by Designs weekly challenge.
